Firm to Bring 125 Jobs to Campbellsville

Serco, a travel and hospitality company, is expanding its reach in the industry by creating 125 jobs at its Campbellsville center. The international service company acquired Intelenet Global Services last year in order to partner global travel with hospitality services for worldwide clientele. “Kentucky welcomes Serco’s growth and success in Campbellsville,” Gov. Steve Beshear said in a statement.

“We’re extremely pleased that a company of Serco’s worldwide influence would choose to expand operations in the Commonwealth, which is another testament to the competitive quality of the workforce here in Kentucky.”

Based in the United Kingdom, Serco offers operational, management and consulting expertise in numerous sectors, including aviation, business process outsourcing, defense, education, government, commercial and communications technology. The company has more than 100,000 employees who deliver mission-critical services to government and private clients in more than 30 countries.

A small number of home agent positions will be available for employees who would have an unreasonable distance to commute to Campbellsville.

“I am very excited about the new expansion plans for Serco,” Campbellsville Mayor Tony Young said. “They are a tremendous asset to our community. The creation of 125 new jobs adds to the tax base and their growth is certainly a welcomed economic boost to our community. We are so glad they chose Campbellsville for this expansion.”
